After a whirlwind of a year, corporate offices across the country are transitioning back to in-person work. Because changes in working environments have the potential to induce additional stress on employees, it is extremely important that companies prioritize employee wellbeing now more than ever. The pandemic has left American workers feeling overwhelmed and overworked. As a result, it is imperative that employers help manage employee stress during their transition back into the workplace.
Technology is a valuable asset that can be utilized to smooth this transition period for employees. Specifically, workforce management technologies, systems that automate and integrate human capital management (HCM), like those created alongside RJ Reliance, can be utilized to eliminate time-consuming and mundane manual processes. Doing so helps reduce employee stress by allowing for improved office communication, prioritization of meaningful work, and utilization of widely adaptable and consistent processes.
Communication within an organization is immensely important as it impacts employee satisfaction, levels of productivity, decision making, and company relationships. Ineffective communication is highly correlated to job dissatisfaction. Communication can easily be improved by integrating and unifying company systems and processes, such as those within the HCM department. Once company data is connected across systems, employees are on the same page as one another and communication is made easy.
By automating processes, employees no longer have to worry about completing tasks unrelated to their role in the office and are free to prioritize meaningful core business functions. Looking into the long term, this is an easy way to prevent employee burnout and increase employee satisfaction. Purpose driven work helps to inspire and motivate employees and cultivate a productive work environment. Plus, implementing efficient processes alleviates the pain of time-consuming and repetitive processes as well as helping to reduce employee error and frustration.
While your work environment may change, it is important that information systems stay interconnected so that employees can easily access key information anytime and anywhere. Incorporating HCM technologies that increase automation and integration help contribute to process consistency. Such consistencies help alleviate employee frustrations by expediting the time it takes to complete simple daily tasks and improving employees ability to work efficiently and collaboratively even when asynchronous.
